as far as I know there's no way to unlock the 920 yet outside of getting the carrier to do it

I've seen a couple of posts and a YouTube video showing people using phone unlocking websites to network unlock so hopefully I can too.
I'll report back when the phone and its imei number arrive

congrats on the lumia. its an awesome phone. that thing is built like a tank. people are going to get jealous.

about the unlock, i've unlocked a few by code from a cell unlocking site for rogers in canada and at&t in the U.S. I'm not sure about your carrier and where you can get a code from, but its certainly possible because i've done them.

Good job. Check the screen for any dust under it.

I have returned a black (dead pixels) and a white (dust) and got my red one today. Brilliant phone, I love it.

I'm not sure if a firmware flash unlocks it. On of the files of the flash is a simlock file which can set it to 0. Mine isn't locked, so I can't confirm.

There's always using WMP as well till the new WP8 apps get updated a few more times to fill the missing pieces.
